Install - Why are the 64-bit executables not installed when running xsetup.exe from a 32-bit machine?

Description

When running xsetup.exe from a 32-bit machine onto the network location of a 64-bit machine, the tools will install the 32-bit executables onto that machine.

Solution

The installer will check the Processor_Architecture environment variable of the system running the executable to determine what version of the tools to install.

If the tools detect a 32-bit architecture, they will install only the 32-bit executables regardless of where the install directory is located.
